For decades, school sports have been a mainstay of the traditional school experience. If your child wants to participate in school sports, there are many reasons why you should go ahead and support this desire.
At Tabernacle Christian School, we offer many opportunities for our students to get involved in school sports. Here are just a few reasons why we are big proponents of school sport activities and programs:
- Fitness—Today, many students spend a lot of time doing sedentary activities, such as watching television or playing video games. School sports give your child a structured opportunity to get up and get active.
- Improved academics—If you want your child to do better in school, they don’t necessarily need to do more homework. Some studies have shown that one of the benefits of participating in sports is that students often do better in the classroom as a result.
- Learned values—The lessons your child learns on the court or field extend far beyond this setting. Participating in sports teaches persistence, patience, and practice, all of which are values that can benefit your child in school and later on in life.
- Teamwork and cooperation—Most school sports require children to work together as a team to achieve a common goal. When your child participates in a sport, they learn the valuable skills of teamwork and cooperation.
